Dolly Parton shares why she didn't let Elvis record hit song

Dolly Parton revealed she has been wearing a full face of makeup to bed in case of an “emergency” that requires to be camera-ready.

The country icon made the candid admission about her glamorous looks in her new book, Behind The Seams: My Life In Rhinestones.

In the book, Dolly explained: “When I arrived in LA in the 80s, I started sleeping with my makeup on, partly because of the earthquakes.

“I thought, ‘I’m not heading out on the streets without makeup in case there are cameras out there! I’m going to be ready to go!’”

However, Dolly ensures her face is cleaned properly in the morning before redoing her makeup – and this is a routine she has at home too.

She continued: “It doesn’t matter when you clean your face as long as you clean it once a day.

“After I wake up, I do all the little rituals, and then I start over again and go out every day and look good all day long.’

“This is also true back home in Tennessee. I don’t want to go to bed looking like a hag with Carl.”

Dolly had previously admitted that she never leaves the house without makeup on, and stressed there are no exceptions.

She told People: “Death! You’d just have to see me laid out on a stretcher.

“No, if my husband [Carl Thomas Dean] was sick, or if there was an emergency, of course, I would [leave the house without makeup].”

Dolly then further quipped that she would still need to “clean up a little” for a mugshot before she was arrested.

She added: “I’m going to clean up a little if I’m going outside, unless there’s an absolute emergency, and it would have to be pretty serious.

“I would do it then, but that would be the only way.”
